How to Repair Nose of Wakeskim Board?

Recommended Posts

While failing a 360 last weekend, my Ronix "The Skimmer" board ended up on the swim platform.  I think it must've hit the handle above the platform because afterwards I noticed that the nose is damaged.  :oops:  I can't get the "Insert image from URL" feature to work, so here's a link to a picture: Wakeskimmer picture

Any suggestions on repair?  I was thinking some marine grade epoxy and clamp it together while the epoxy sets, but wondering if anybody has found a better solution.  It appears that the bonding from the bottom layer of the board to the core has failed, as it's wanting to delaminate.  Thanks!

I'd do just what you are considering.  Maybe stick a couple of toothpicks in there to hold the wound open, then fill with two part epoxy and clamp it shut.  Gently wipe excess and leave it for a couple of days.  I've fixed our boat board like that like 6 or 7 years ago and it's still going strong.

Thanks for the feedback!  I contacted Ronix as well and they also recommended Solarez.  I ordered a tube from Amazon which showed up today so I'll give it a try in the next day or two and report back.  I like the idea of holding it open with toothpicks while I push the Solarez in there.  

As a side note, any idea how to insert a picture into a post?  I'd like to upload photos when I'm done so you can see the results.
